MRC-funded research from King’s College London suggests one in 13 young people in the UK have had post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) before reaching age 18.
Researchers say, with many young people not receiving support, the study should be a "wake-up call".
This study reports a case of portopulmonary hypertension that was secondarily caused by post-traumatic mesenteric arteriovenous fistula. A 38-year-old man with a history of knife stabbing wounds in the abdomen in 2003 was admitted to the hospital with exertional shortness of breath and a mechanic murmur over the umbilical region. Computed Tomography indicated signs of portopulmonary hypertension and mesenteric arteriovenous fistula.
ConclusionAcceptable post-operative outcomes were demonstrated throughout the case series. In describing the pre-operative work up, intra-operative findings and intra-operative and post-operative complications encountered, common important technical points associated with a successful surgical strategy are described. Furthermore, potential pitfalls that may be encountered can be anticipated.
The figures, from King's College London, are some of the first to highlight the extent of trauma on young people's state of mental health. The large study is a 'wake-up call', researchers said.
